Photographer's Note

This was a couple hours and many km later than here

The man is watching over the bay toward San Francisco at the Golden Gate station. If you look carefully, you will see Bay Bridge on the left leading to Oakland. At first, I was waiting for the man to leave, but finally, I realize the man was perfectly placed to balance the composition and made it much more profound opposed to the bridge with those "things" (how's it called??looks like owls) in the middle and the city in the background.

thanks to André, I just learned that the Bay Bridge is closed for the moment which makes this photo very actual. Per CNN.com: "The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge was still closed early Friday morning, with no predawn announcement on whether it would be open for commuters.
Transportation officials had said Thursday night that there was a slight chance of the bridge reopening for Friday's morning commute.
As of 5:45 a.m. the 73-year-old bridge that usually carries 280,000 vehicles a day was empty.
On Tuesday, three pieces of steel from the bridge fell onto its roadway, forcing its closure.
Crews working on the bridge are replacing four steel rods, one of which failed and caused two rods to fall onto the bridge's deck, California's secretary of business, transportation and housing said at a news conference. Engineers also will make sure the rods are centered and will strengthen the welds to ensure stability, Dale Bonner said. Vibrations in the rods, affected by strong winds, caused the break."

have a nice day,

Marc
